In the same way that silence is needed alongside sound to create music, The Seams series revolve around the play of arranging polar qualities of painting alongside each other to create harmony within the canvas.
The transparent and the opaque,
the static and the dynamic,
the vibrant and the muddy.
Sometimes we have to listen to the music in between the lyrics to reach a newfound level of appreciation for the song. The in between exists in everything and it is only when we choose to notice that it can it impact us. It is in this exploration of the flux where I truly hope one can begin to see the lines of boundaries and binaries starting to dissolve.
The work hopes to encourage the use of imagination in order to see what one wants to see; the painting leaves the ball in the court of the art viewer. At the end of the day, the paintings hope to offer more of a sensation over a block of words that one should understand about the work. In focusing and trying to see what the art has to offer, the work hopes to engage the viewer and foster a receptive and meaningful dialogue.

Jessica Chan is a contemporary artist born in Canada who now lives and works in Singapore. Interested in the relative nature of binaries, and how the world in this day and age has become arguably closer and more accessible than ever before, her practice explores this current intimate phenomenon through the anachronism of painting.
